Customer Review

on 14 January 2014
After deliberating over, and doing a lot of searching and review reading, I eventually decided to treat myself to a new pair of headphones. But then there was the whole wired/bluetooth dilemma...

I looked at, and listened to the Harmon-Kardon BT's which were good, but not quite there... The Bose QC15's were too plasticky and way overpriced for their sound quality, the same can be said of anything with "Dr Dre" in the name, my Daughter has a (genuine) pair of Beats Studio, that cost around £250, and my £30 Sennheiser CX300's jump all over them for sound quality...

THEN I started reading about these - As said elsewhere, they were WhatHiFi's "Best Bluetooth Headphones" of £2013, and that was at the RRP of £250.. I'd pretty much settled on them, even at that price, but then spotted them on Amazon, and sold by Amazon (rather than a third party, which is important to me, as reduces possibility of "fakes") for the bargain price of £157..

Received next day, fully charged.. Paired in seconds to my Galaxy S4 (with APTX).. WOW.... The sound quality is nothing short of awesome..... Styling is great, quality, but not too overstated, build quality is also excellent, nice leather and tactile stitching on the headband, aluminium elsewhere.. They are also neither too light, nor too heavy, with a nice quality feel to them.

Bluetooth range is good, I can walk to the top floor of our (3 storey) house, whilst the phone is on the worktop in the kitchen, and not skip a beat, the APTX is also fantastic, with a VERY noticeable improvement in sound quality over a non APTX bluetooth connection, as on my Galaxy Note, in fact there is no discernable quality loss between APTX Bluetooth, and the wired connection.

Controls are easy and not at all fiddly as some have said, once remembered it's a doddle to alter volume, pause, skip forward or back. VERY comfortable and getting 14-15hrs per charge so far... AND, if they do run out, at least you can still use them with the supplied lead!

Buy them, you won't regret...

The ONLY thing I am not 100% with, after using them in bed last night, is - The flashing BT light.. Not noticeable at all during the day, but in a darkened room, is too bright, and quite irritating..
